The amazing wild, deep-sea Carabineros, the world’s finest prawns: sensational flavour, size and colour: 1kg, 15-20 prawns
If ever you and your gourmet guests want to taste the ultimate prawn, here it is: the wild, deep-sea Carabineros. Serves these, and your rank as a gourmet chef will soar!
Recognised as the world’s finest prawns, their striking deep crimson colour hints at their unbeatable and intense depth of taste. Carabineros are like no other—and we are thrilled to be able to bring them to our Members at the chefs’ price.
Carabineros’ rich and robust flavour is quite different to that of the usual prawn. The flesh inside is fine-textured, firm and juicy, with a beautiful sweet taste. Grill whole in the shell for minutes to experience an explosion of flavour. The head alone is packed full of taste intensity, and a delicacy prized by gourmets worldwide.
These genuine Carabineros (Aristaeopsis edwardsiana, genus plesiopanaeus) are named after the red uniform worn by the Spanish guard, and indeed in Spain they are prized, as well as in France, where they are known as Crevette Imperiale. That flavour and size are achieved by feeding only on plankton and seaweed at depths of up to 1,000 metres. They are caught by small, family-run boats, flash-frozen on board to ensure they are at their best.
Clearly, Carabineros are a delicious indulgence, but the good news is that as a CountryClubuk Member you receive the chefs’ prices, so that you and your favourite gourmets will not be disappointed!
